Leadership Roanoke Valley

Leadership Roanoke Valley (LRV) was established in 1983 to encourage community leadership in the region. The interactive, 10-month program helps participants better understand issues facing the Roanoke Valley. Creative ideas and approaches help build leadership skills and show participants how to make a difference in business and the community.

Participants attend a two-day retreat, explore diverse leadership styles, and assist the community with a service project. Monthly programs are created, organized, funded, and facilitated by participants under the guidance of curriculum counselors. Programs address topics related to workforce development, tourism, health and social entrepreneurship.
